Information from last meeting

19 September 2011 Comments Off on Information from last meeting

Meeting: Friday 9 September 2011, 3.00-4.00 p.m., BuTo 799

Notes (of a brief and perfunctory nature):

Introduction–what The Cluster is and does, what it’s done in the past, what’s planned for this year (the Medieval Workshop), floor opened to volunteers to give papers, other suggestions,…

The main portion of the meeting was spent trying valiantly to figure out what times would be possible. Given the logistics of graduate seminars, assorted members’ teaching, the dept. research seminar, etc.

Interest was expressed in repeating last year’s information sessions with librarians (area and period-specific resources); and possibly one with the new mss & rare books specialist librarian.
